Dentures can benefit patients experiencing a variety of types of tooth loss. During your initial consultation, our team will examine your mouth and provide you with your options to rebuild your smile. Until your appointment with us, here are some things for you to take into consideration about candidacy for dentures.

Effects of Missing Teeth

Tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the entire body. While they are incredibly durable, teeth aren’t completely indestructible. They can still become damaged in a variety of different ways – like due to tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma to the mouth. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, there are numerous negative effects of tooth loss, including facial sagging, difficulty speaking, trouble eating, and low self-esteem. By replacing your missing teeth with dentures, you can improve all of these areas, resulting in a better quality of life.

What Qualifies You for Dentures?

Dentures are an ideal solution for people who are missing multiple, most of, or all of their teeth. Depending on the number of teeth you are missing and where they are located in the mouth, we can put together a custom plan just for you. It’s important to have excellent oral health before getting dentures, so any tooth decay or gum disease needs to be addressed beforehand. Once your existing teeth and gums are in good health, we can plan the rest of the denture process.

Alternative Tooth-Replacement Options

If dentures don’t sound like your cup of tea, there are some other tooth replacement options you may like to consider:

  • Dental Bridge: A dental bridge “bridges” the empty space with a replacement tooth. The replacement tooth, also called a “pontic,” is supported by two dental crowns that are placed on the adjacent teeth. This is ideal for those who are only missing one or a couple of consecutive teeth.
  • Dental Implants: A dental implant is a screw-like post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth. This requires that the patient has a healthy jawbone. Dental implants have a higher upfront cost than dentures, but they are made to last for multiple decades.

Types of Dentures

There are multiple types of dentures for patients facing different tooth loss scenarios. Based on our findings during your consultation, we may recommend one of these three types of dentures that we offer.

Partial Dentures

Partials are able to replace several missing teeth across an arch. They utilize a metal or acrylic base designed to fit like a puzzle piece between your existing teeth. Attached to the base are natural-looking replacement teeth crafted from porcelain or ceramic.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are able to restore an entire arch of missing teeth. The base is crafted from a gum-colored acrylic and designed to sit atop the gums and utilize natural suction to remain in place. It supports lifelike ceramic or porcelain replacement teeth, making basic tasks like eating and speaking much easier.

Implant Dentures

We also offer implant dentures, which allow you to reap all of the benefits of traditional dentures as well as implant technology. Instead of your prosthetic being supported by suction, small titanium implant posts will be inserted below the gumline to replace your missing tooth roots. These will hold your dentures in place, eliminating any shifting and restoring your bite power by up to 80%.

The Benefits of Dentures
